I enjoyed the Enemy to Friends to full blown love story. This story is entertaining enough to keep you listening to it. Narration is good too.

In book 3 we learn what happened to Rimmel's mom, why her dad has been distant and what happens to Zach after attacking both Romeo and Rimmel. Their commitment to each other is tested and you learn just how far they are willing to go for the other. I like that you are easily able to pick up where you left off in the series.

It started with unspoken animosity. The bitter bite of jealousy. And now it's full-blown hate. It was during my first football game that I felt the first chill of hate. I looked it right in the eyes and felt its sticky tentacles reach out for me. I'd never experienced something so cold and empty before. The effect of that look lingered, like an unspoken promise, long after it was gone. Becoming a couple, becoming the other half of a campus celebrity, wasn't easy.

The story continues where the other one left off. This one gets more into the developing relationships between Romeo and Rimmel and the developing friendships with Rimmel and Braden. If you like the college/new adult books you should like this one.

Two people from completely different worlds are about to be thrown together...in more ways than one. She wants to keep her scholarship. He wants to stay on the team. An awkward alliance doesn't even begin to cover Rimmel and Romeo's relationship. But that's about to change.

If you like college romance stories, which I do then you should like this one. I think if you need a break from some of the heavy romance and just want something light/sexy this should satisfy you. I will continue the series but may do some other books in between. I also enjoyed the narration. I have to say I download/deleted this book several times only because there were other books that I chose to read but I am glad that I finally did listen. I like Rimmel and Romeo story.

It was my home run ball that shattered her face. Right along with her modeling career. Now it's my mission to help her rebuild her life. And get her to love the game that she hates. The game that dictates my life both on and off the field. But when the lines of our friendship become blurred, I worry she'll just be another casualty of my three-strikes rule. The rule I have to protect my money, my future, my heart. No girl has ever broken it. I've never wanted one to. Until now.

I've enjoyed every Samantha Christy book so far that I've read. I like that she blends characters from her other books. This book has mentions of the Mitchell sisters as well as the Stone brothers. I like Murphy and Caden. I love all of his nicknames for her and how this is a friends to lover story. I would have like more intimacy in this book but at the same time the way their relationship developed this isn't one of those books that jumps quickly into sex where you scratch your head thinking "that was fast". I always love Erin Mallon and Zachary Weber together.

Daisy Flattery is a free spirit with a soft spot for strays and a weakness for a good story. Why else would she agree to the outrageous charade offered by her buttoned-down workaholic neighbor, Linc Blaise? The history professor needs to have a fiancée in order to capture his dream job, and Daisy is game to play the role. But something funny happens on their way to the altar that changes everything.

This was an enjoyable, lighthearted story full of wit and plenty of quirkiness. Daisy knows she's kind of strange but doesn't feel like she should have to fit in to someone else's version of what she should be like, until she makes a Cinderella deal with Linc. Realizing she is falling for him she compromises who she truly is. Also falling in love with Daisy Linc realizes he's taking the color from her, she isn't telling her quirky stories anymore and he realizes that if she is willing to change for him then he can also change for her. This story is about finding yourself and compromise. This was my first time with this author and narrator and I enjoyed both the story and narration.

I'm a lot of things - a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I'll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss. I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.

This was a cute and at times funny story. Tori and Ethan did not have a great start but nonetheless Tori becomes Ethan's nanny. His kids love her and he finds that he can't stop thinking of her. This book has the jealous, cheating ex boyfried, the jealous wife who didn't want to be a wife or mother until Tori came along. This is a good HEA book.

Picture this - I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore.

I thought this was a pretty good laugh out loud story. Quirky, funny, timing is everything. Tom tries to make a big movie jester to get back his college ex-girlfriend and turns out she doesn't actually live there. So there he is standing with boombox in hand at the wrong window. Instead it is Fin's window. From there it just gets better with all the movie quotes, Tom's awkward knowledge of how he thinks he knows what a woman likes. Doesn't take long for Fin to "take him under her wings" and teach him, all while he unkowingly at first becomes her muse. Joe Arden and Andy Arndt are great as usual. A book you can enjoy a good laugh with.

Two weeks before her wedding, Remi Montague's fiancé drops her faster than a drunken sorority girl in stilettos. Armed with her best friend and a bottle of tequila, she hops a plane to London to drown her sorrows before fall semester begins at Whitman University. She didn't plan on attending a masquerade party. She sure didn't plan on waking up next to the British bad boy who broke her heart three years ago - the devastatingly handsome and naked Dax Blay. Furthermore, she has no clue how they acquired matching tattoos.

This was pretty good second chance love story. Dax and Remi story on when they first met, came apart and how they got back together by a chance meeting in London was good. Remi held a secret that she never intended to share with Dax, but had to once it was mistakenly revealed to him. Dax never thought he was good enough for Remi because he never wanted to feel the lost if she ever left him. Their initial separation was because of the bad intentions of someone else. I am glad for the HEA in this book. The female narrator was a little grating, the males was better. It would have have been better to keep the narrators from the first book. But still a good read.

I've loved him as long as I can remember. The gangly boy with big brown eyes and unruly hair who grew up into an intoxicating man. He wears scruff like he invented it and ambles with a swagger that makes panties drop. Killian Shepard. Shep. We grew up together. We played Ghost in the Graveyard. Had our own rock band. It didn't matter that he was five years older than me. It didn't matter that he looked at me as a kid sister even as I grew into woman.

I always struggle with reviews because I do not like giving spoilers. This will be short and sweet so that I do not give anything away.

I wish I could give more that five stars, I did not even know about this book, I ended up listening to because it was chosen as a book discussion for November. I am so happy I decided to join the discussion because this has to be one of the best books I've read this year. It gave me anxiety, it kinda of made me mad, I couldn't decide if I like Maverick or hated her. I absolutely love Kel, dislike his brother and then changed my mind about all. I still loved Kel but then after learning his brothers story loved him and felt bad for him and still on the fence about Maverick but I understand how torn she was.

This story was a hot mess but in a good story way. I never once had it figured out and literally had to listen until the end, My anxiety came when I thought I had it but then I was completely wrong. Narration was great...I got this book through the RP but I just purchased it so that it is in my library forever. Best credit spent this year.
